Know More About Landscape Mistakes

landscape-mistakeGreat finishing can increase the value of your home grounds and make them less demanding to tend to. Inadequately done finishing not just can cost you a great deal of squandered dollars and exertion, it can make an unappealing and difficult to keep up yard and patio nursery.

How to get things off to a decent begin? Keep away from the “Main 10 Landscape Mistakes” and you’ll be en route to sound, appealing plantings. Incorporated by Paul Pugliese of the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Service, this rundown of scene “no-nos” contains a word of wisdom, regardless of where in the nation you cultivate.

For example, mistake number one is leaving burlap, ropes, or wire cages on the rootballs of newly planted trees or shrubs. The root restriction they can cause may result in “pot-bound” plant in the ground or a girdling root slowly killing a tree years after it goes in the ground. Number five on the list is one of the most common mistakes — not taking into account the mature height and spread of a tree or shrub and placing it where it doesn’t have sufficient room to develop. Or how about piling up mulch “volcanoes” around tree trunks, which can lead to rot, or applying too much fertilizer, which can harm plants, contribute to water pollution, and waste money?

Pugliese doesn’t just tell you what not to do; he also gives suggestions for correct landscaping practices. Don’t plant too deep; instead look for the root flare on the trunk and set the plant so the flare is level or slightly above grade.
